I studied Sitar with Allyn Miner who is in the lineage of Allauddin Khan, Ali Akbar Khan and Ravi Shankar. Raga theory is also essential to how I teach other genres of music such as the Blues. I can teach you about buying a Sitar and using it to play both Hindustani Classical and adaptations of other styles of music.
Ever wanted to learn about the Sitar? I can show the foundation of Hindustani Classical music along with techniques on how to play the sitar. I have studied sitar myself for about 8 years, and travels to India to have my sitar hand made for me.
Sitar: A plucked stringed instrument used mainly in Hindustani music and Indian classical music. The instrument is believed to have been derived from the Vena, an ancient Indian instrument. Besides learning how the instrument is held and plucked the student will learn how to tune, play and read notes, rhythms, songs and the basics of music.
